Must be the lack of meat fucking with your faculties. A veggie that can't do maths, the arcade creeper, and the Mexican Viagra muncher trying to tell me what I can and can't eat. Absolute fucking libe

Well, at least the lack of calories isn't affecting your mood.

He’s dead. Found looking like Christopher McCandless

We all knew I was a modern miracle anyway but now we have another reason to prove this. My lass is tall for her sex (5ft 10, height taken at docs & one of those machines etc..) but now I tower a good 2-3 inches over her.

I have a woman and I'm 6ft tall, take that suckers!

 

But seriously me an 'er were exactly the same height but I tower over her now. Maybe the diet tips CT gave me about "growing a few inches" have worked but I genuinely am a few inches taller than her now and she hasn't noticeably shrunk.

I've come to the conclusion that pull ups are the best total body exercise. I just started a new challenge with my training partner to 200 pull ups a week. Strength has improved massively in a month of doing it and I feel really lean despite not doing that much cardio lately.

 

It's such a powerful exercise, if you do enough of them you don't really need to worry about too many other exercises.

 

A good one actually is a pull up/squat/push up/burpee. all you need is a bar and your body weight and you can nail every muscle group and your cardio in one movement

tough enough to get to a point where you can happily bang out pull ups though, personally i still can't i have to use the assisted machine to do any meaningful sets

Just chip away at them. But drop the help from the machine straight away for quicker gains. Start doing them unassisted, even if you can only manage one or two, then try to add a rep each new session. Even if you don't bust it out with perfect form straight away, or even just concentrate on the negs, it doesn't matter. Just as long as you're going to failure. Before you know it you'll be busting out sets of 5, then 10.

 

I doing 40 a day at the moment, unassisted in two 20 rep bundles. Start with a set of 10 then two sets of 5. Never felt stronger. It's the king of exercises. Very satisfying when you nail them.

Aye that's what i have been doing like a reverse 5x5 lol dropping the weight slightly each week,

 

need to start doing them at the start of a session though by the time I do them i'm burnt out tbh, with footy training i only get to the gym a couple times a week so i do a full body routine, prob fitting too much in for one session tbh

like todays http://www.myfitnesspal.com/exercise/diary/Ant___?date=2014-06-01

(skipped a load of the leg stuff today as i had a charity tournament on friday legs are fucked from it)

Honest opinion of that programme mate, you're trying to fit too many isolation exercises in and spending way too long at the gym. None of those exercises will do you any harm but if your times stretched - it sounds like it is - I'd recommend stripping it right back. I rarely train for more than 30-40 minutes. Only focus on compound moves, like pull ups, squats, dead lift, clean and press. But more often than not now I'm doing plyometric moves - jumps etc.

 

Another top tip: ditch the machines and use free weights instead. You'll engage way more stabiliser muscles, engage core more and burn more calories performing the same moves with dumb bells or bar bells as you will on the machines.

it's stretched in the sense i don't have the days to fit it in as i've other stuff on rather than the hours, the couple of days I can go I can take my time with the session, it's not as bad at the min but when july hits it's

Tues/Thurs 2hr footy training, Saturday Match, i'll goto the gym generally on thursday night 21:30-23:00 after training and sunday mornings.

Then mix in a couple lunchtime work games i play at half pace for an hour just to get some running in.

 

Most of those machine entries will be hammerstrength plateloaded jobs like the one below or i'll use a smith machine so still using stabiliser muscles (well more so than the cable loaded machines), it's only the tricep extension (rope) or flys i use the cable machines for mostly, and i'll use dumbells in the house for skullcrushers etc

must admit I don't go near deadlifts/barbell squats, frankly I don't trust myself not to snap my shit up (getting the bar settled my back for squats feels awkward as fuck especially) going buy myself a rack for the house see if i can sort that out,

gym got one of these hacksquat machine recently though so going give it a blast

Fair play. You've got to do whatever works for you. For me personally, I like to be in and out of the gym in less than an hour. So I ditched isolation exercises like bicep curls, lat pull downs, triceps pull downs et al a while back. No need for them if you're doing pull ups or bench press. You can hit all the muscle groups you're targeting in that lengthy workout in 6 exercises - pull ups, bench press, standing shoulder press, bent over row, squats, dead lifts.

 

That said, these days I barely lift weights at all other than kettle bells. All you really need is your body weight and a bar.
